This is an interesting article from the Washington Post

Regarding expanding Second Amendment rights. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2015/07/20/a-survey-of-legislative-action-on-second-amendment-issues-in-2015/

"The Outcry Worked"

I believe someone posted the story here 6-8 weeks ago about locals protesting a proposed gun store in Arlington, VA in a strip mall in the Cherrydale neighborhood. The person who wanted to open the store is a former marine who owns NOVA Firearms in nearby McLean. Locals didn't want a gun store in the neighborhood because "guns are bad" apparently. The owner of the strip mall announced today that NOVA Firearms would not be opening a store in Cherrydale because he had canceled the lease. Details aren't clear but story implies that the owner of NOVA Firearms agreed. Funny thing is that there is a pawn shop literally three blocks away that has sold guns for 20 years, which nobody has ever protested, and if you want a broader selection you can go to the NOVA Firearms location in McLean or to Silver Eagle Group in Ashburn. I drive by the strip mall (and two minutes later the pawn shop that sells guns) on the way to work and hate that this guy wasn't able to open his store.
